I have been waiting weeks to find out the gender of my little one. Ever since week 18 hit I have been itching to see my little one on the ultrasound to know that everything is indeed okay. I wasn’t able to find out at 18 weeks though; I had to wait. It was the cost of moving and seeing a new obstetrician in the middle of my pregnancy. When I went to see him at 20 weeks he said that he wanted to send me off to a high risk obstetrician who would be doing my ultrasounds. I will admit that my stress levels skyrocketed at the news. I know he is just looking out for baby and I, but that meant two more weeks of the unknown while I waited for an appointment.
Those two weeks were pure torture for me. I worried about the little one growing inside of me. I needed to know that everything was okay and that my precious little one is healthy. I had been feeling little kicks, but they were irregular which intensified my worries. Thankfully my appointment came and I learned that I have a very healthy little one growing inside of me. There were no signs of any genetic mutations that he could see on the ultrasound. I won’t be able to know if my child has CMT until after the birth seeing as I do not want to do an invasive test to see if the genetic markers are there. I am confident that I will be able to see signs of CMT early on if my child has it.
It’s a Boy!!
I am excited to state that we are having a little boy!! It is some very exciting news for us. We do need to narrow down our options on boy’s names because we haven’t been able to decide on a boy’s name that we love completely. Thankfully we have a few more months before the name has to be set in place. I am so excited knowing that my little peanut is a boy! He is also beginning to kick more and more every day. My heart is just full of so much love for the little bugger.
Now that I have that out there I need to share with you my man’s adorable gender reveal that he posted on Facebook. He is so creative. I love our little pirate and I know he loves our little pirate just as much.
Our Little Pirate!
It is amazing. I cannot get over the fact that we are having a baby boy, one who will be our little pirate. I cannot wait to keep moving forward in this amazing journey. We are growing a gorgeous little baby. His arrival in February or March will be the best early birthday present ever!
